Open Query is supporting the mysql-cli Kickstarter project (for MySQL and MariaDB) by Amjith Ramanujam who already successfully completed a similar tool for PostgreSQL.
It is a new MySQL client with Auto-Completion and Syntax Highlighting. From the info provided, it’s Python based, thus portable, and can be installed without root access. Could be a very useful tool. The good old mysql command line client does lack some things, yet a relatively low-level command line client is often useful for remote tasks (as opposed to graphical tools) so we reckon it’s good that this realm gets a bit of attention!
